The Women Supporting Brett Kavanaugh Confuse Me

So, I won’t lie, son. Today’s post is more of a philosophical debate than an indictment on Brett Kavanaugh. Frankly, I have no idea what to make of the allegations against him, man. Shit, Christine Blasey Ford could very well be telling the truth about her high school encounter with Kavanaugh. Deborah Ramirez could very well be telling the truth about her Yale University encounter with Kavanaugh. Keeping it a buck, we’ll only know for sure once the facts come out, fam. However, the women who are so quick to defend Kavanaugh confuse, bruh. Look, in the era of #MeToo and #TimesUp, what does it mean when women don’t believe women’s stories of assault?

Look, I was inspired to write this when I saw roughly 75 women hold a press conference to support Kavanaugh. Essentially, they were there to refute all of the claims against him and establish his credibility. My thing is, why are all of these women so ready to dismiss the accusations against him? Do they believe that their personal relationships with him automatically mean that he couldn’t have committed these acts? Man, one thing has absolutely nothing to do with the other, son. Listen, just because they had a positive experience with him doesn’t mean that he didn’t assault these women. All I know is, we’re looking at a group of women victim-shame other women. Clearly, that’s not a good look for anyone, fam.

The way I see it, situations like this damage the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements, bruh. Real talk, if women don’t even have other women as allies, then how can behavior be changed and justice be served? Now, like I alluded to earlier, I have no idea what happened between Kavanaugh, Ford and Ramirez. Frankly, no one does but the parties involved, son. However, it’s unnerving how fast people will ignore problematic claims when they involve someone they know. Hell, we saw the same shit happen with Lena Dunham. Listen, she was a “feminist” until a guy she knew got accused, man. Then, all of a sudden, a woman’s claims shouldn’t be taken seriously. All in all, this sets a dangerous precedent, fam.

In the end, I don’t know what’s going on, son. Ultimately, this entire Supreme Court process has been a shit-show, man. By and by, there are a multitude of reasons why Kavanaugh shouldn’t be allowed on the bench, fam. At the end of the day, if these allegations are true, this just solidifies it, bruh. All I can say is, if Ford and Ramirez are being real, then every last one of Kavanaugh’s supporters should be ashamed of themselves, brethren. That is all. LC out.

Mollie Tibbetts’ Murder Isn’t About Immigration

Keeping it a buck, situations like this is why I hate politics, son. I mean, elected officials will use ANY tragedy to further their agenda, man. Now, in the case of Mollie Tibbetts, her murder has already been politicized, fam. Like, instead of focusing on the tragedy of her death, politicians are using her untimely end to bolster their own arguments. All in all, I don’t want to hear shit about immigration, bruh. Frankly, Tibbetts’ death had NOTHING to do undocumented individuals.

Ok, for those who are unaware, Mollie Tibbetts was murdered in horrible fashion. So, back in July, Tibbetts, a 20-year-old student at the University of Iowa, disappeared after an evening run. Now, up until this past Tuesday, no one knew what happened to her. All of this changed after a body was found, with stab wounds littered all over. As of right now, Cristhian Bahena Rivera, a 24-year-old illegal immigrant from Mexico, confessed to the crime. Apparently, Tibbetts rebuked his advances and he killed her.

Now, based on the fact that Rivera is from Mexico, immigration haters couldn’t wait to latch onto this story. Donald Trump, Fox News and loads of conservative pundits used this tragedy as an example of why we need new laws and the border wall. Side note, I never thought I’d give Geraldo Rivera props. But, shout-out to him for calling Fox News out on their skewed coverage of this case. Fuck him otherwise, son. In any case, while erroneously attributing Tibbetts’ death to immigration, folks are missing the real factor here: violence against women.

Look, it goes without saying that women are in danger in this country. Day after day, week after week, women are attacked by men for a myriad of bullshit reasons. Real talk, Rivera killed Tibbetts because she didn’t give him what he wanted. Not because he’s from Mexico, man. On the real, this immigration narrative is distracting from the fact that something needs to be done about men’s behavior towards women. I mean, ain’t that what the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements are about, fam? Listen, this is a golden opportunity to teach dudes how to be better. Instead, we’d rather bury this scenario in politics.

In the end, fuck agendas, bruh. Ultimately, all of these false narratives keep us from making any real progress, son. By and by, I want to say Rest In Peace to Mollie Tibbetts. At the end of the day, no one deserves to die like that, man. No one. That is all. LC out.

A Date With The Booty Warrior: Paul Manafort & Michael Cohen Edition

So, someone is going to prison, son. Specifically, Paul Manafort and Michael Cohen are most likely going to prison, son. All I know is, Robert Mueller ain’t playing with these motherfuckers out here, man. Shit, in one day, both Manafort and Cohen took massive L’s in the court of law. Now, regardless of what Donald Trump would like us to think, he’s in a world of shit, fam. Look, Manafort’s guilt might not rattle him, but Cohen’s guilt must be keeping him up at night.

Ok, for those who missed it, shit got real yesterday. To begin, Paul Manafort, Trump’s former campaign chairman, was found guilty on eight counts of tax and bank fraud. Basically, Manafort had been doing all manner of fuckery with his money, unbeknownst to the government. Now, that in and of itself would’ve been huge news, bruh. However, shit got even realer when Michael Cohen, Trump’s former lawyer, pleaded guilty to tax evasion, falsifying submissions to a bank and campaign finance violations.

Now, allow me to go into more detail about that last charge, son. Look, this is where shit gets murky for Trump, man. Essentially, Cohen admitted, under oath, that he unlawfully used money to pay off women for Trump. Even worse, he asserted that he did it at Trump’s request. So, Cohen definitively implicated the fucking President in a series of crimes, fam. *Sigh* What a day, bruh. What a fucking day.

Look, the way I see it, Cohen’s guilt is way more consequential than Manafort’s. As of right now, Manafort’s issues fall squarely on Manafort. But, Cohen’s issues go way beyond the man himself. Hell, the dude is out here saying that he has proof that the Leader of the Free World is a fucking criminal, son. I mean, what else needs to be said here, man? How much more tomfoolery has to occur before the GOP disavows Trump, fam? For God‘s sake, enough is enough, bruh. Trump is making a fucking mockery of his office, brethren.

In the end, it looks like Manafort and Cohen have respective dates with the Booty Warrior. Ultimately, prison is never worth all of the nonsense, son. By and by, there’s no going back now, man. We all need to see where this Mueller investigation goes. At the end of the day, this shit is off to a fiery start, fam. That is all. LC out.

P.S. Everyone needs to familiarize themselves with The Boondocks in order to understand the name of this post. Frankly, “A Date with the Booty Warrior” is one of the greatest episodes of any show ever. Shout-out to Aaron McGruder, bruh. Good day.

Donald Trump Is Vladimir Putin’s B*tch

Listen, let’s just skip the pleasantries, son. On the real, even if someone is a staunch Donald Trump supporter, they have to admit that yesterday was a fucking travesty, man. I mean, his post-meeting press conference with Vladimir Putin was one of the worst things I’ve ever witnessed, fam. Look, the American people had to witness the fucking President of the United States grovel at the feet of a foreign leader. All I know is, when will enough be fucking enough, bruh?

Ok, for those who missed it, yesterday was a complete and utter shit-show. Now, I already wrote about my skepticism of a closed-door meeting between Trump and Putin. However, I never thought the aftermath would be so insane, son. Like, I don’t even know where to begin with the nonsense, man. Shit, I could talk about the fact that Trump believes Putin over the U.S. intelligence agencies about Russian election meddling. Hell, I could even talk about the fact that Putin openly stated that he wanted Trump to win. In any case, their joint press conference was high-level fuckery, fam.

Look, here’s something that Trump doesn’t seem to understand: there’s a difference between meddling and collusion. Now, Robert Mueller‘s investigation is trying to determine whether or not Trump’s campaign conspired with foreign entities. However, the meddling part has already been proven, bruh. Like, we have unequivocal proof that Russian agents fucked with our election process, son. The problem is, Trump has too much pride to even admit this, man. Real talk, he simply refuses to acknowledge that outside influences helped him win the Presidency. In his mind, only his “greatness” propelled him to the White House.

So, here we are, fam. The American public has reached the point where our “leader” openly and frequently sucks up to a hostile nation. Listen, at this point, I don’t know how to explain what we’re witnessing, bruh. Keeping it a buck, I have no idea why Trump is so hell-bent on appeasing Putin, son. I don’t know if it’s because of potential business ventures or if Putin really has some dirt on him, man. Either way, Trump willfully betrayed his own country in favor of a foreign dictator. All in all, he disgraced every last one of us, people.

In the end, *sigh*. Ultimately, I don’t know what else to say, son. By and by, I’ve been legitimately baffled since yesterday, man. All I know is, I am still thoroughly confused about what I watched, fam. At the end of the day, Donald Trump cares WAY more about Russia than America, bruh. Frankly, the Republicans have to make a choice, folks. Are they going to stand up for this country, or are they going to continue doing the bidding of a traitor? The choice is theirs. That is all. LC out.

Why Is Trump Meeting With Putin?

So, I’m going to keep this post short today, son. Frankly, I don’t have a ton to say, man. On the real, I only have one simple question, fam: why exactly is Donald Trump meeting with Vladimir Putin? Like, what is the precise objective of this one-on-one meeting, bruh? In addition, why the fuck is the meeting one-on-one in the first place? All in all, my “spider-sense” is tingling like a motherfucker right now, folks.

Ok, for those who missed it, Trump is currently meeting with Putin in Helsinki, Finland. Apparently, the two “world leaders” want to hash out the differences between the United States and Russia. Now, it’s no secret that Trump has a love affair with Putin, son. I mean, he’s been singing Putin’s praises since the campaign trail, man. In any case, their relationship is highly problematic because Trump simply refuses to admit that Russia interfered with our election process. So, why should anyone feel confident about a closed-door meeting between these two men?

Now, before I continue, let me put some things into perspective, fam. Look, regardless of whether or not someone believes that the Trump administration conspired with Russia, it is a FACT that Putin’s country hacked the Democrats. Shit, Robert Mueller JUST indicted twelve Russian intelligence officers for hacking emails, bruh. So, we don’t even have to debate the tomfoolery, son. Real talk, we cannot trust Putin and neither should Trump, man.

Look, the problem is the fact that Trump can’t accept that a foreign entity helped him beat Hillary Clinton. Listen, like I said before, we can speculate whether or not the Trump team actively worked with Russian officials. However, we already have verifiable proof that Russia meddled with our election, fam. With that being said, it’s beyond me that Trump has so much fucking faith in Putin, bruh. Like, we have years upon years of evidence of Putin’s treachery, son. Plainly put, we can’t trust that fucking dude as far as we can throw him, man.

In the end, this entire scenario is sketchy as fuck, fam. Ultimately, we have a foolish president meeting with a conniving president in a closed-off setting. By and by, I don’t see what good can come of this, bruh. At the end of the day, I’m deeply troubled by what I’m seeing right now, son. *Sigh* I don’t even know what else to say, man. LC out.

A ‘Space Force,’ Son?

Man, what the fuck is going on in America? On the real, I’m amazed that Donald Trump can still amaze me with some of the shit that comes out of his mouth, son. Like, a “Space Force,” fam? I mean, out of ALL of the things happening in our country at the moment, is THIS where we need to dedicate our time and taxpayer dollars? Shit, are we in imminent danger of Star Wars and Star Trek coming to life? Bruh, can Trump spare me the fuckity-fuck shit?

Ok, for those who missed it, Trump is still out here being Trump, son. Now, on Monday, he made an out-of-the-blue announcement, man. Apparently, he wants the Department of Defense and the Pentagon to put together a “Space Force.” Essentially, this new initiative would constitute the sixth branch of the Armed Forces. Side note, this shit ain’t about the military at all, fam. Listen, right after telling a bunch of generals to start putting plans together, he stated that wealthy individuals who “like rockets” would be able to launch into space. Well, for a fee, of course. Hell, I guess they’re really trying to create those condos on Mars, bruh.

Look, this is NOT the time for the shenanigans, son. Right now, there are COUNTLESS issues that need our attention, man. For example, what about those separated kids at the southern border, fam? Real talk, one measly executive order doesn’t reunite families that have already been ripped apart. Also, what about the pipes in Flint, Michigan? Last time I checked, the residents were still dealing with filthy water, bruh. Keeping it a buck, I could go on and on, folks. Frankly, the United States has MORE than enough on our plate. We don’t need the extra shit, people.

In the end, I’m not falling for the gaffle, son. Ultimately, anytime shit starts to go haywire in the Trump administration, he comes with the MEAN misdirect, man. At the end of the day, I’m not going to sit here and pretend like I’m well-versed in the intricacies of “defending” space. But, I do know that there are WAY more important and immediate issues that need to be fixed in our country. So, knock it the fuck off, Trump! That is all. LC out.

P.S. If this “Space Force” actually happens, will a brotha get a lightsaber or a phaser? Asking for a friend. Good day.

Children Aren’t Negotiation Tools, Donald Trump

So, I won’t lie, son. Real talk, I haven’t written about the heinous practices at the southern border because I haven’t been able to find the right words to express my disgust. Like, I don’t know how a “fair and just” nation could EVER think that separating innocent children from their parents is an acceptable policy. All I know is, I’m sick of Donald Trump, I’m sick of the GOP and I’m sick of all of the people who support this inhumane agenda.

Now, at this point, EVERYONE should’ve heard about what’s happening at the southern border, son. Basically, kids are being ripped away from their parents for trying to get into this country. Ok, yes, there absolutely should be checks and balances for who’s allowed to come into the United States. However, what part of the game is decimating families for the sake of immigration? Look, America has been a nation for almost 250 years. Clearly, we’ve used MUCH better ways to determine an immigrant’s status, man.

Look, I’m not falling for any of the smoke screens, fam. On the real, I hope NO ONE believes the idea that the Democrats enforced this law. First, Trump himself tried to use the separation practice as a negotiation tool. Shit, he literally said that he’d change the law if the Dems agreed to fund his border wall. Next, Jeff Sessions flatly told Laura Ingraham on Fox News that the policy was being used as a “deterrent.” Meaning, they’re threatening immigrants with losing their children if they come across the border.

To make matters worse, crazy ass Stephen Miller is a STRONG proponent of the policy and is alleged to be the psycho who created it. Finally, when I watch Ann Coulter call the crying babies “child actors” and hear Corey Lewandowski say “womp womp” to a video of a girl with Down Syndrome, I know that I’m witnessing pure evil, bruh. So, with all of that being said, miss me with the “this is the Democrats fault” shit. Keeping it a buck, this is EXACTLY the type of devastation that the Republicans wanted, son.

In the end, America continues to show the world just how garbage we are, man. Ultimately, I don’t know how anyone can take pride in this nation, fam. Ok, wait, that’s not true, bruh. By and by, the ONLY people who take pride in this country are the ones who aren’t affected by any of its despicable policies. At the end of the day, the U.S. continues to prove that it isn’t built for anyone with pigmented skin. That is all. LC out.

P.S. If anyone thinks I’m being overly dramatic, just look up “tender age shelters” in Google. *Sigh* This is America, son. Word to Childish Gambino.
